Enter the asphalt area (ft^2) and the asphalt depth (in) into the Asphalt Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Asphalt Weight. 

Asphalt Weight Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Asphalt Weight.

AW = AA * AD/12 *  145


  • AW is the Asphalt Weight (lb)
  • AA is the asphalt area (ft^2) 
  • AD is the asphalt depth (in) 

How to Calculate Asphalt Weight?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Asphalt Weight.

  1. First, determine the asphalt area (ft^2). 
  2. Next, determine the asphalt depth (in). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = AW = AA * AD/12 *  145.
  4. Finally, calculate the Asphalt Weight.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

asphalt area (ft^2) = 30

asphalt depth (in) = 2

AW = AA * AD/12 *  145 = ?
